Durham, N.C. – Evangelist Billy Graham is resting comfortably in stable condition while being treated for bronchitis at a hospital in Asheville, N.C., his evangelistic association said Monday morning.
Graham, 93, was admitted to Mission Hospital early Sunday for treatment of a lung infection. He has been responding well to treatment, according to pulmonologist David Pucci.
Graham was feeling well enough to watch the London Olympics' closing ceremony from his hospital bed, said his spokesman, A. Larry Ross.
"The ceremony brought back fond memories of various crusades Mr. Graham held in the UK and in Rio de Janeiro, the host city for the next Summer Olympics, over seven decades of public ministry,’’ Ross said in a statement.
